After graduating in Medicine in 1996 in Italy, I moved to London to train as a General Practitioner. I completed my training in 2000, and have been practicing as an NHS GP for the past 18 years.
I chose General Practice as my specialty because it offers a holistic approach to health management.
Holism is something I am passionate about. It has led me over the years to further train in nutrition and Functional Medicine. I believe in looking at the whole person and seeking root causes of chronic disease.
I have often had feedback from patients that I am a good listener and I am easy to talk to.
As a Foundation Year 2 Supervisor, I have had experience with overseeing junior doctors’ work in General Practice in their first two years following graduation.
Between 2008-2011 I worked as Obesity Clinical Lead for the Borough of Bexley.
Between 2012 and 2017 I was a Local Medical Committee representative for Bexley and then Wandsworth, supporting other GPs shape services for their local communities.
I was a GP partner in Bexley between 2009-2016, before moving to SW London and developing my interest in Functional Medicine, which I practice alongside NHS General Practice.
I am a native speaker of English and Italian. I am fluent in French. I also speak basic German.
In my spare time I sing for several London choirs and take the dog for long walks.
